Today, we have a guest post from Jodi McLaughlin, who was our featured practitioner in a previous Acupressure for rabbits post (where there is also a detailed description of an acupressure session she performed on her rabbit Diego).
Jodi, a Certified Holistic Small Animal Massage Practitioner, is the founder of The Blissful Bunny Massage Workshops. She has written many articles on massage for rabbits, and has been featured in several books. I don’t have a link to her website here because due to family obligations, her animal massage business has had to be put on hold for the moment.
Jodie’s describes the basic bunny massage strokes here and how to use them on rabbits, and these are the same strokes you would use on anyone, be it human or animal. You obviously would go a bit heavier on humans and very lightly on rabbits and other very small animals, but this gives you a great introduction to the strokes. Thanks for sharing this with us, Jodi!
